Bonfire Labs announced that it has hired producers Stephanie Hornish and Mona Salma. Hornish joins Bonfire Labs as senior producer and Salma as a producer. Combined, the two bring almost 30 years of experience to Bonfire’s production team.
Hornish has a background in film, television, animation and visual effects. She began her career at (Colossal) Pictures as an art department assistant, doing live-action production, cel, stop motion and CG animation. In 1999 Hornish moved to Lucasfilm‘s Industrial Light & Magic, where for 12 years she produced visual effects for blockbuster films, including Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Indiana Jones, The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Salma has a background in broadcast television commercials. She began her career at MacKenzie Cutler, a boutique editorial house in New York, as an editorial assistant in 2000. Her years at MacKenzie Cutler included work on advertisements and Superbowl spots. In 2011, Salma moved back to San Francisco, her hometown, and worked as a freelance producer for Cut + Run SF and Venables Bell & Partners before landing at Bonfire Labs.
“Both Mona and Stephanie bring a wealth of production experience with both our bread-and-butter projects of visual design and live action, and the specialty projects that might involve visual effects or print assets,” said Carey Crosby, executive producer at Bonfire Labs.
